Does Elementor Have a Contact Form?

Yes, Elementor has a contact form block available in the Pro version. You can use this block to easily add a form to your page while you’re editing the page in Elementor. While Elementor’s form block is only available for paid users, you can use the WPForms block for free. You’ll need to have both WPForms and Elementor installed in order to access the WPForms block in Elementor.

In the steps below, we’ll walk you step-by-step through the process of creating a contact form in Elementor without paying a penny.

How to Make a Free Elementor Contact Form

We’ll start by installing the needed plugin first.

Step 1: Install the WPForms Plugin

The first thing you’ll want to do is install the WPForms plugin. To do this, open your WordPress dashboard and navigate to Plugins » Add New.

Add new plugin

Now, search for WPForms and click on Install when you find it.

The installation will take only a few seconds. Once that’s done, the Install button will now read Activate. Press Activate to finish setting up WPForms on your site. It’s that simple!

With the installations out of the way, you can now go ahead and create your contact form, as we show in the next step.

Step 3: Make Your Elementor Contact Form

You can immediately start creating your contact form by navigating to WPForms » Add New.

Add new form

This will load up the WPForm builder in a few seconds. Start by naming your form so you can easily identify it if you later need to make any edits.

Naming your form

Scroll down a little, and you’ll see the form templates.

If you’re using WPForms Lite, you’ll have dozens of free templates you can choose from to make form building super quick and easy. Later on, you can upgrade to Pro to access 1,223 WordPress form templates. These templates include ready-made forms for customer service, marketing, and various other categories.

Because we need a contact form, the free Simple Contact Form Template is ideal for our purposes in this post. You can search for this template in the search box and click on the Use Template button when it appears on your screen.

Use simple contact form template

After you’ve chosen a template, the WPForms builder will open.

The WPForms user interface is designed to be super easy for anyone to use. On the left, you can see all of the fields that are available to add to your contact form. On the right, you can see a live preview of your form.

If you want to customize the template, just drag any form field from the left-hand panel to the form on the right. You can add dropdown lists, multiple-choice questions, and more.

You can also drag fields up and down to move them around on your form.

If you want to open the field settings, click on the field once in the builder. When you look to the left-hand panel, you’ll see the settings next to the form preview.

Go ahead and click on each field to set it up the way you want it. When you’re done, click Save at the top.

There’s all sorts of conveniences you can enjoy using WPForms. For instance, you can even use it as a gateway to connect Elementor Forms with Google Sheets!

Step 4: Set Up Elementor Form Notifications

Now let’s check the messages that will be sent when the form is submitted. In the form builder, click Settings, and then click the Notifications menu item on the left.

On the right, you can see the notification email that will be sent to you when your form is submitted. You can customize the email here if you want to.

Did you notice that the email will be sent to {admin_email}? That’s a placeholder for the Administrator email address in WordPress.

You can delete {admin_email} and type in your business email address here, or change the admin email address in WordPress if it’s wrong.

Step 5: Set Up Elementor Form Confirmation Messages

Next, click Confirmations. On this screen, we can customize the message that shows up on the front end when the form is submitted.

This is optional, so you can just leave the default message if you’re happy with it.

And that’s it! It’s time to click the Save button at the top. You can close the form builder by clicking the X at the top-right of the form builder window.

Great job! Your Elementor form is ready, and we just need a page to put it on.

Step 6: Create Your Elementor Contact Us Page

In this step, we’re going to build a custom Contact Us page using Elementor.

From the WordPress dashboard, click on Pages on the sidebar and then press the Add New button.

Publishing the contact page is a breeze with Elementor. But did you know that you can also style your form using Elementor’s WPForms block options?

To do that, click on the area around the embedded form on your page to open block options on the left-hand pane. Then click on the Style tab.
